 I am constantly on the look out for books that I can recommend to the young ones whenever there are no available copies of Diary of a wimpy kid.  This book is one of those in which kids learn something useful amid all the fart jokes (and there are many in this book). Gross out humor aside, the book deals with some complicated issues such as friendship, moving and blended families.  This is the third book in the series but the author does a good job of reintroducing the main characters Sam Dibble, his friends Wax and Robert.  In this installation, the School Invention Fair is coming up and Dibble is determined to come up with the best invention.  His plans to use the help of his best friend go awry when the teacher partners Robert with a new student.  Dibble must rely on his smarts as well as the advice of his inventor grandfather if he wants to take first place.
